We continued looking at the Lectionary readings in Acts, tracing the impact of the resurrection on the early Church.
We based our thinking on Acts 11:1-18, the story of the start of the argument that follows through much New Testament writing. We got there via Gavin and Stacey, St Anne's Parish Church and the story of my Aunt never going to a funeral on a Friday (except her own because I didn't know when I arranged it).
I couldn't think of anything interesting to say for Easter Sunday this year, so I thought we could play Blankety Blank instead...
We heard from Acts 10:34-43 and Luke 24:1-12, and then considered what the significance of that day then is for yesterday, today and tomorrow. We included, too, the great Juergen Moltmann (via Twitter)
This morning we took another "hero of the faith" from the list in Hebrews 11; this time we looked at Moses. There are amazing stories of this man in Exodus, but the reasons he is commended in Hebrews 11 are slightly different.
We read Hebrews 11:23-26 and Exodus 2:1-25.
